LAPD arrests boy, 15, who allegedly ransacked Eastside preschool while he was nude

A 15-year-old boy who allegedly broke into a Boyle Heights preschool and took off his clothes was arrested Tuesday, Los Angeles police said.

The boy is suspected of twice breaking into the Centro De Alegria preschool, where he ransacked the school looking for valuables, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Surveillance video showed the suspect taking off his clothes and masturbating in the school lobby, according to the LAPD.

The boy was booked into Eastlake Juvenile Hall on suspicion of burglary. Detectives tracked him down after receiving a tip from a resident who saw a television news report of the crime.

alright! already on his way to a live of depravity and crime! can't wait til he's released upon society!

How strange! One couldn't make this stuff up.

Now, now! He has rights! He was only expressing his points of view! What's the matter whith you! We must blame it on his parants, who probably didn't given him everything he wanted, and didn't breast feed him! (cue the sarcasm here)

You think this kid might have some serious issues...ya think!!

Damn gay marriage. Look what it's doing to our children! Oh, wait...gay marriage is still illegal here.
